Hello all,

I must say this is quite terrifying for me. I'm not one to join online forums to celebrate my fandoms, much less participate in them as I don't typically have the time or energy; but I have been experiencing some strong connections to various characters and plot points in The Wheel of Time (both book and tv series), and this seems like the right community to explore them with.

Anyway, call me Freagar (he/him). It's the name of my first character while playing Lord of the Rings Online. He was an area of effect sword wielding champion hailing from the rebuilt city of Dale. It felt like a proper tribute to a goal of becoming gaidin, though I might lack the discipline needed.

I've listened to the full series on Audible, two and a half times through (currently on Lord of Chaos). I look to get a nice set of physical copies sometime in my near future. I've watched the Amazon series through season 2 twice at this point. It's hard to name a single favorite character... I'd follow Lan into the Blight, I'd lose my pay playing cards with Mat, I'd let Myn break my heart, I'd scheme with Thom, and I might even turn to the dark for Ishamael (planned post for this later).

Anyway, I wanted to say thank you for the encouragement from Leala ni al'Dareis t'al'Caleum and Rhyin al'Hut, and excited to be here.

Welcome to Tar Valon, Freagar! I'm so glad you could join us! I loved hearing your descriptions of what you'd do in the books! Honestly, I'd probably follow Nynaeve into the Blight before I'd follow Lan. :laugh: Not that i don't like Lan... just that i like Nynaeve better! Though, I'd have to say if i were in the books, I'd likely be an Aiel Wise One.

Welcome Freagar! I see Leala snagged another one. :eyes: :laugh:

But seriously, we're just a group of book nerds, nerding out about finding likeminded nerds to nerd out with. I'm sure you'll fit in just fine around here. :hug
